  • By Geography: North America, South America, Europe, APAC, and RoW

Key Takeaways

  • New product developments and increasing investments in research and development of ethylene dichloride are expected to drive the growth of this market.
  • Among application, the vinyl chloride monomer segment is projected to lead the ethylene dichloride market during the forecast period.
  • North America dominated the ethylene dichloride market.
  • By Application - Segment Analysis
The Vinyl Chloride Monomer segment held a significant share in the ethylene dichloride market in 2019. Ethylene dichloride is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor. It is manufactured by reacting ethylene with chlorine, which is further thermally cracked in order to produce a vinyl chloride monomer. Ethylene dichloride can be manufactured using two routes. The direct chlorination process that uses pure chlorine and ethylene is primarily employed to produce ethylene dichloride. Another process called oxy-chlorination, wherein the ethylene reacts with chlorine in hydrogen chloride, is also frequently used for the production of ethylene dichloride. Under the oxy-chlorination process, ethylene dichloride is converted into vinyl chloride monomer by thermal cracking and the hydrogen chloride by-product can again be recycled in an oxy-chlorination plant to make more ethylene dichloride. Ethylene Dichloride is majorly used to produce vinyl chloride, which is used in the making of wall coverings, housewares, automobile upholstery and PVC pipes.

The prevalence of COVID-19 has led to decreased utilization rates of refineries across the globe, resulting in supply shortages for various end-use sectors. The health crisis has, on a different note, has led to a sudden spike in demand for olefins which find usage in the formulation of sanitizers and other cleaning products

  • By End-Use Industry - Segment Analysis
The oil & Gas segment held a significant share in the ethylene dichloride market in 2019 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. While the oil industry has been slated for steady growth owing to the increasing demand for gasoline and fuels, vendors have been concentrating on the expansion of refinery capacities to cater to the rising demand for crude oil products. Conventionally, ethylene dichloride is used as a lead scavenger in petrol and as a result, an increase in petrol or gasoline demand is expected to fuel the ethylene dichloride demand in the near future.

Ethylene dichloride market demand from rubber & plastic applications may drive the market, it is used as a dispersant in rubber and plastics owing to its penetration properties. It is used as a solvent for cleaning purposes and various extraction in organic synthesis, metal, textile and adhesive industry owing to its high solubility.

Geography- Segment Analysis

North America dominated the ethylene dichloride market with a share of more than XX%, followed by Europe and the Asia Pacific. Increasing the utilization of PVC for the execution of the “smart city” project should further boost product demand. Owing to increasing demand from public & private infrastructure and construction industries are likely to boost product demand. Europe ethylene dichloride market size, led by the UK, France, Italy, and Germany is predicted to show a steady growth on account of its growing consumption for manufacturing vinylidene chloride, chlorinated solvents, and ethyleneamines. The regional ethyleneamines market is predicted to rise on account of its growing application in personal care & household products. Asia Pacific ethylene dichloride market size, led by India, China, Australia, and Japan is predicted to witness significant growth on account of rapid industrialisation. Transformations in the industrial segment, which increases its sales in the construction industry, may foster the product demand.

Drivers - Ethylene Dichloride Market

Increasing usage of ethylene dichloride in various end use industries

Production of ethylene dichloride is generally carried out at polyvinyl chloride manufacturing plants. Ethylene dichloride is mainly used in construction applications; hence, its demand is closely related to the construction industry dynamics. Owing to its crucial properties such as high melting point and vapor pressure, it is utilized in packaging, transport, apparel, and healthcare industries. Moreover, increasing urbanization and government intervention towards the infrastructure development for the public and private benefit has led to the consumption of ethylene dichloride. Furthermore, ethylene dichloride is also used for the production of ethylene amines which then used as corrosion inhibitors, lube oil and fuel additives, surfactants, and wood preservatives. Further, it is also used for the production of other chemicals such as trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, and vinylidene chloride. In the automotive sector, it is majorly used for manufacturing automobile components such as automobile instruments panels and sheathing of electrical cables.

Challenges - Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market

Health effects

Attributing to the toxic nature of ethylene dichloride, it causes nausea and drunkenness in humans and also creates a negative impact on the environment. Thus, government authorities have implemented strict rules and regulations on the consumption pattern of ethylene dichloride. For instance, ethylene dichloride is included under the Clean Air Act, section 112(b) List of Hazardous Air Pollutants regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Thus, stringent environmental regulations on ethylene dichloride are expected to hamper the global market in the near future.

Market Landscape
